By J.

For my trip in Canada, I needed a survival knife which would be extremely robust, light and small enough to always carry it on me but not too light and small so that I could still use it to chop wood reasonably well. The handle should be made of a synthetic material, since I want to be able to use it in any type of climate. My experience is that metal handles are solid but do not absorb the shock when chopping something and in colder climates tend to be uncomfortable to hold. Wooden handles do not have these problems bu may be affected by the humidity (the handle of my Ka-Bar knife started to swell after a longer period in the tropics). I did some research on the internet. After comparing a set of knives, I decided to go for the Fallkniven A1 Black. When I first inspected my new A1, I was very impressed with the quality of manufacturing and how carefully thought out every detail was. I was left with the impression that this knife was indeed designed and produced by people who know precisely what matters in the domain of survival and knife making. The A1 perfectly balanced, has a think blade and despite it's size, works well for chopping wood. The blade's design also prevents it from getting stuck in the wood. The kraton handle is very ergonomic and absorbes shocks nicely. Because the full tang goes through the handle, it won't break, even under heavy duty. The blade of the A1 black is teflon coated. This protects the blade form corrosion and also heat. The coat however partly wears off around the cutting edge after a certain time. The Zytel sheath is solid, secures the knife nicely but still permits to pull out the knife easily and quietly. In his book, "The SAS Survival Handbook", John Wiseman states "A knife is an invaluable asset in a survival situation. A serious adventurer will carry one always". For me, this is the one I shall carry with me.
